Memes & Prompts

Day 11 – Catching Up

Jun 11, 2019 | Posted by in Every Damn Day in June 2019, Everyday Jade | 0

I’m sitting here in bed, smelling like lavender soap and the bath. I’ve had a couple rum-and-somethings and I am feeling – finally – relaxed after the stressful conference weekend. I didn’t want to write. I’ve missed days while at my work conference, no way to write or anything else during, but now I am home. All I wanted was a drink, a book, and my bed. Instead I went out to my (hopefully) flourishing city garden, watered and weeded, because it needed me, and I, it. I needed to destress, and weeding does that for me. Like cleaning and organizing my closets. But outside. With living things. Then I came inside, and really didn’t want to bother with a bath, but knew that, also, would help. And it did. So here I am, now, smelling good and feeling clean, and having so many things to say… But also. I’mRead more …

Day 8 – Connections

Today’s prompt for Insta’s #DearJune is connection. I love the prompt. There are so many ways I can go with this. But…not in my Insta (this is the ongoing, internal, debate I have: make a Pieces-of-Jade Insta? But what about my daughter and other vanilla people who now follow me?) Forging those connections, and then keeping them separate, is fucking hard. It’s why I mostly stopped doing it with friends and sister. I fucking HATE having to cover up. And I SUCK at it. I’ve been pretty open on my FB. I’m pretty sure most of anyone who friends me knows I am poly. But this other thing…kink…  No. I have a lot of friends that accept me as poly, and even bisexual, but I just can’t be out there as kinky. It’s NOT that I am ashamed of what I do. It’s that I don’t feel comfortable sharing my sexRead more …

Day 7 – Risks

I’ve missed and/or jumbled up my days. My participation has not been 100% on #DearJune either, but I’m okay with that. Well, I think about it a bit, because I couldn’t be me if I didn’t let it bother me a little, but not so bad as it might have done. I give myself a frowny face and then move on. Anyway, here’s the post I made on Instagram for (what I think was) Day 7, the prompt being “risks.” On the heels of a post that felt entirely appropriate at the time – and I will not deny my own experience of things – but in the light of day I realize was…an emotional reaction, and possibly not the best representation of the situation…this post means a lot to me. It reminds of the risks I took when I decided to give my submission and my love to another.Read more …

I’m here (Oops, Day 5)

Jun 6, 2019 | Posted by in Being Poly, Every Damn Day in June, Everyday Jade | 1

I’m writing. On my phone. Because no energy to sit up and do this the right way in my Chromebook. Just wanted to confirm that yes, I’m here, I’m writing, cuz it’s June. And…well you know the drill. I’m better. Or getting there. V and I talked. The past – and the mistakes made – are not things that can be changed. The present is what it is, and I have no control over anyone else’s decisions or actions, only my own. I’ve gotta let go of both of those things and be in the here and now, for my own happiness and mental health. So here I am. Doing the thing. We’ll see how it goes.

Day 4 – Forgetting

The prompt for today’s #dearjune is not an easy one for me. I thought about making light of it, joking about how I have a memory like a sieve, haha. (I do. Not so haha, but there it is. Some people have good brains, mine’s a little hole-y.) But I couldn’t do it and write something truthful, and, if I am going to put words to paper for posterity (or as long as computer memory lasts) I choose to always write my truth. I get that it might not be someone else’s – I know the story about the elephant and the blind men – but it’s mine, and that is all I can write. So of course, the words “memory” and “forgetting” always have to do with W. Even when I don’t want them to. Wait, what? What does that mean, “When I don’t want them to”? That soundsRead more …

Day 3 – Instagram & #dearjune

Jun 4, 2019 | Posted by in Every Damn Day in June, Everyday Jade | 0

I’ve joined in with the #dearjune Instagram meme that MollysDailyKiss found and mentioned in her own blog and Instagram account. It involves a daily word prompt (Day 1 was “Beginnings,” yesterday’s was “Yellow,” today is “Music.”) I like the idea of using images to participate (along with some words here and there) and want to use the meme as a way to get myself comfortable with Instagram. The daughter really wants me to be on there more, as that is where she tends to hang out. I was also going to try to use that prompt here for my Every Damn Day in June posts, but ran up against the issue of my Insta being under my full legal name. It’s followed by “regular” folk that don’t know me as a sex blogger, so obviously I can’t use this content there (if it’s sex or kink related) and I can’tRead more …

June 2 – #SOSS

I know, it’s Sunday, not Saturday. I’m well aware of this. But the way I figure it, any day that we “share our shit” is the right day to do it. Also, “Share Our Shit SUNDAY” fits the abbreviation, too. So here we are. My #SOSS is actually going to be a call-out to all the fantastic Scavenger Hunts that folks have been doing recently. I’m so happy to see participation taking an upswing again. It is difficult for me to follow-up sometimes, but I’m here, plunking away, trying to keep up! Keep on keeping on, ya’ll! (And click the link about if you’re curious what it’s all about.) First up is this haunting image by Purple’sGem: The Secret Garden. This reminds me of a favorite book of mine, In the Garden of Good and Evil. She says that the editing “fixed” things she didn’t like in the original. IRead more …

June 1 – Yep, It’s That Time Again

It’s Every Damn Day in June time again! I was so excited when I heard that Hyacinth of A Dissolute Life Means… was hosting the writing meme again this year. It’s not a prompting meme, in that it doesn’t give you a topic to write about each day – it is simply the prompt to write, Every. Damn. Day. I love it! Maybe it’s the submissive in me, but I do so much better when I’m told to do a thing. As part of my conditioning for the Grand Canyon adventure, I am (once again) trying to train myself to get up early. Left to my own (lazy) self, I would (literally) sleep in til 20 minutes before I have to leave for work in the AM. I love snuggling in my bed, under my quilt, with my pillows mounded all around. But. I only I have so many days,Read more …

Seduction

May 6, 2019 | Posted by in Masturbation Monday | 7

Sometimes I think, if I could just write well enough, I could seduce you. Perhaps I should say seduce you again, because you were once seduced. By me. By us. By what you thought I was or what you thought we were. Now… What are we now? What have we become? I lay here in bed, in the bed I share with you, watching you across the room. You stand in the doorway of your closet, sliding shirts across the rail, trying to choose one to wear tonight. I love the sight of your back, of your shoulders, of the slightly-softer V of your body as it narrows (not as much as it used to) to your hips. I love that, specifically that, how your silhouette has softened with age, how age has softened all your edges. I imagine running my hand down your back, a finger trailing along theRead more …
